The phenomenon of the evolution of tourist areas is taken to comprise a series of consecutive changes ongoing wherever tourist visits are played host to, thanks to which the said areas become subject to socioeconomic change. This is the process described in the subject literature by reference to a so-called “life cycle”, an approach that has come to be regarded as one of the most successful theoretical conceptualisations ever arrived at in the study of tourism-related phenomena. In fact, what started out as a simple model has been transformed into an interesting and well-developed scientific tool, capable of depicting a complex world with ever-great precision. The article recalls the newest theoretical solutions the concept has been imbued with in recent years, i.e. the complex system approach and certain assumptions arising out of chaos theory. – (BJ)
